Backroom converted into a cool space to watch films and play pool—all in time for Christmas!

A client got in touch with Trusted Technology as they wanted to turn their back room into a Media Room. Unlike Cinema Rooms, which need a designated room in a property, Media Rooms can be integrated into an existing space, giving it dual function. In this case, the customer wanted a room to display their art collection and have an American pool table, together with the wow-factor of an integrated audio and visual system.

The brief was very specific and clearly stipulated that all technology must be hidden from view when not in use, along with a wish list of high-quality sound from ceiling speakers and a single remote control for all the audio-visual equipment as well as the lights. At 9m long by 4m wide, the room was a fair size and lent itself well to this type of project.


A Sky engineer said Sky Q couldn’t be installed due to the large size of the house. The proposed solution was to run network cables to each set top box, but with huge cosmetic consequences to the newly decorated home.


Trusted Technology completed a WiFi heat map, which showed an opportunity to install an enterprise WiFi network that would carry the Sky Q signal to the additional set top boxes, without installing the extra cabling.

Nothing excites our team more than automating motors, so when they heard all the technology that was required, they set to work using our bespoke design software and soon had a plan using the following high-performing equipment:

  • A motorised projector drop featuring the recently award-winning Epson TW7300 projector.
  • A motorised 2.3m screen concealed in the ceiling.
  • Triad’s amazing range of directional in-ceiling speakers and a Yamaha AV receiver.
  • Voice control and single remote interface from the intuitive Control4 platform, controlling not only the audio-visual system, but also four circuits of lighting from their new range of UK products.

The result was stunning and achieved under very tight pre-Christmas timescales. The customers were extremely happy that they would be able to entertain their Christmas guests with their brand-new Media Room!
